I saw him minutes after we got relegated at Brentford as we were getting into the car for a miserable journey home. I have refereed him several times and know him reasonably well as we always used to

So basically if you have black hair and a beard you stay, everyone else out.

He actually said it!   ‘We will outline our demands to the players and what is expected from them. They are going to have to work very hard, stick together and have a right good go.’

Barton is a thug who masquerades as some kind of intellectual. A disgusting human being who, by the looks of what happened today, has once again shown his true colours. 

I still think Sunderland will get automatic promotion but they are making hard work of it. If they end up in the playoffs I'm not convinced that they have the mental fortitude to get through it. We'll see. A club that size will come back up at some point, but they could end up in the Sheff Utd bracket of taking some time to get back up off the floor.

See that Joey Barton is being investigated about assaulting the Barnsley manager. He's a one.

I'm surprised it took him nearly a full season to get into it with another teams manager,the guy's got a short fuse and will never change.

Don't think we have seen Accy, dingles and Rovers all win on the same day before this season.

Accy gave themselves a sporting chance of survival with that win over Walsall. Still need to get a draw somehow from one of the last four fixtures and pray that three of the teams beneath them don't all get two wins out of their last four games.

Now a lottery between Barnsley, Sunderland and Pompey for 2nd automatic promotion slot.

Gary Bowyer's Bradford relegated.

Bradford in the third highest average gate in League One (second but for the Sunderland anomaly), and have finished in the top half in each the last five years, play-offs twice. Now relegated bottom of the league. Surely that isn’t just down to Bowyer’s shortcomings.

He’s only been there a month

I don't think much of it is down to Bowyer at all, he only came in just over a month ago and they were already six points adrift by that point. It's only a short term deal too, so he may not even be there next season.

An interesting look at it here. Looks like GB has been keeping himself busy!

A few former Rovers players at Blackpool too. Jack Payne, Hope Akpan (captain!) and Paul Caddis. Granted only our good friend Hope ever really played a decent amount of games for us.

Not even that according to wiki. Blimey, that was a poisoned chalice. Must be backing himself to get them back up.

Short term contract I believe, might not even be there.

If he is I’d probably back him to get them up.

What are the odds on the oldest professional club (Notts County) going out of the league and being wound up/reformed/merged with another club (such as Baseford United)?

Either of those would have to involve a name change wouldn't it? Hence a historic goodbye.

and to be fair the fans reaction on social media was all very positive when the new deal was announced so they obviously like what they seen so far

Autos no longer in Sunderland’s own hands after a late Posh equaliser... (lolgasm)

If I lose my local trip to Rotherham, would love it to be Barnsley...

But Portsmouth seemingly coming from nowhere could go second with their game in hand!

Drama at both ends of League One...

mid table mediocrity never looked as good for those of us with dicky tickers

I assume you meant Bradford City (who also have Rovers Academy grad Anthony O'Connor! And Kilgallon only left them in late August), but the number of former Rovers at Blackpool is pretty funny: John O'Sullivan, Liam Feeney, Chris Taylor, Jay Spearing, Nathan Delfouneso, plus Terry McPhillips as manager. (They've also got Ben Heneghan who we apparently almost signed last year, I suspect this is a NW England agents thing!).
